Land at Stafford Road, Penkridge

Location: Penkridge, Staffordshire
Client: Bloor Homes
Sector: Assess Promote Shape
Scope: Communities

A critical review of the spatial strategy and housing land supply trajectory identified an opportunity to seek planning permission for the development of a significant extension to this recognised sustainable settlement ahead of a review of the Local Plan. The application was underpinned by a carefully considered Masterplan where a landscape-led approach to place making provides multi-functional green spaces at the heart of a cohesive scheme for the development of 200 dwellings.The new homes would be closely integrated with the existing urban form and particularly with the nearby settlement centre. Whilst planning permission was initially refused, we presented planning and landscape evidence to a public inquiry, the appeal was allowed and the development is due to start on site shortly. In the context of the Local Plan Review that has now started, we have presented a Vision for further growth in this locality, that demonstrates both the deliverability and capacity of a comprehensive development, set within a robust green infrastructure framework, that will support the sustainability of the settlement and address housing needs in the longer term.
